アニメだと攻殻機動隊とか、パトレイバーみたいな都会的なモチーフがすごく好きです。アート系フィルムでもたまに都会を撮影した綺麗なものがあるけど、アジア版を見つけたのでメモ。Rob Whitworthというマレーシア在住のイギリス人の方のVimea動画が素晴らしい。

 

通常の動画とは違い、コマの速度を落として撮影したフィルムを微速度撮影とか言うんですけど、今回はCanonのカメラで撮影しているようです。微速度撮影(Time-lapse photography)に関しては、下記をご参考に。

 Kuala Lumpur DAY-NIGHT

クアラルンプールの昼と夜を撮影してつなげたフィルム。使った写真は、なんと19,997枚なんだそうな。でもすごく綺麗で幻想的。けばけばしい色がアジアの喧噪の隠喩にもなっているように見える素晴らしい動画。

 

 

Kuala Lumpur: super-modern buildings juxtaposed with various cultural enclaves and with a little of Asia’s chaos thrown in. My time lapse explores how the city changes from day to night highlighting how spaces dramatically alter during the course of a few hours.

As summarised by Marc Lourdes on Yahoo! Malaysia:

“5 months. 400 hours of solid work. 4 cameras. 40 shoots. 640 gigabytes of data. 19,997 photographs.”

 

 

 Hoi An Time Lapse: Life in the Fast Lane

ベトナム中部のホイアン(越:Hội An・英: Hoi An, チュノム:會安)という都市に生活する人達を撮影したフィルム。水上での移動や市場の活気が伝わってくる。

 

 

Each morning the dawn calm of Hoi An, Vietnam, disappears in a frenzy of activity. Whether it’s conical hatted ladies conducting million-dong-deals or school girls in their perfect white Ao Dai uniforms commuting four-to-a-bicycle, Hoi An is a full of life… That is, until about 9pm each day when the bustling streets empty and calm returns.

Hoi An has effectively been preserved in time from it’s days as one of South East Asia’s busiest trading ports. I was privileged to call Hoi An my home for just over a year. As a visitor I will only ever understood a fraction of the activity that keeps the streets and waterways alive. I wanted to capture and share some of the sights that inspired me during my time in this historic town.

 

 Traffic in Frenetic HCMC, Vietnam

ベトナム最大の都市、ホーチミン(越:Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh/城舗胡志明)を撮影したフィルム。活気ある都会の凄まじい交通量から、郊外の河川を進む船まで撮られてて面白い。

 

 

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is an amazing up and coming city. This time lapse is a culmination of 10,000 RAW images and multiple shoots capturing some of the cities relentless energy and pace of change.

Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic. Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the cities energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.

Thanks to everyone who helped with the film and thanks also to the numerous kind people who allowed me access to some amazing locations.
